NIGHT RANGER


Sister Christian Lyrics

Sister Christian, oh the time has come
And you know that you're the only one
To say okay

Where you goin' what you lookin' for
You know those boys
Don't want to play no more with you
It's true

You're motorin'
What's your price for flight?
In finding Mister Right
You'll be alright tonight

Babe you know you're growin' up so fast
And mama's worryin' that you won't last
To say let's play

Sister Christian there's so much in life
Don't you give it up before your time is due
I think it's true and I know it's true yeah

Motorin'
What's your price for flight?
You've got him in your sight
And drivin' through the night

Motorin'
Night yeah
You'll be alright tonight
You'll be alright tonight

Motorin'
What's your price for flight?
You've got him in your sight
You're just drivin' through the night

Motorin'
What's your price for flight?
In finding Mister Right
You'll be alright tonight

Sister Christian, oh the time has come
And you know that you're the only one
To say
But you're motorin'
You're motorin'

in the '80s we used to say 'lets motor' meaning 'lets hurry up and get there' or meaning to drive fast to get somewhere specific quickly. if someone was moving (in any way) with the intent to get somewhere fast, then they were said to be 'really motoring'.

Awesome song so takes me back to the 80's. keagy wrote it about his sister Christy and the band thought he was saying Christian and it stuck. motorin is the word they used for cruisin. Their words not mine

The song is obviously about a young woman having the right and power to choose (at the time that the choice has arrived) to give it up for some guy or another.

I think, in this song, 'motoring' means 'run or move as fast as possible' and 'flight' refers to 'the action of fleeing or attempting to escape' (Oxford American Dictionary).

I think it's about a brother having to watch his little sister grow up and watching out for boys for her

To me I remember my friend from 6th grade. Brad was 11 years old and this was his favorite song. He died from getting hit by a drunk driver while he was riding his bike to baseball.

Night Ranger's drummer, Kelly Keagy, wrote this song about his sister Christy, who is 10 years younger than him and was growing up fast. Essentially the song is about her coming of age.

Thsi sog has so much thought to it. The firsy verse stars to talk about the moment they are in, she is on her death bed and lookin back onto her life. The whole song is just flashig back thru her life

I always thought it meant she was deciding wether or not to lose her virginity..takes me back..the 80's music is and always will be the best time ever..no other decade compares :)

I think it's about a young woman leaving home for the first time and facing other big decisions like who to marry or what college to attend.
